No Wonder We're So Confused

This photo of the highway signs was taken between Wytheville, Va and Max Meadows, Va.

The photo in a strange sort of way illustrates life.

We seem to be going both directions at once. We're going north while going south. What's even more strange is in reality this stretch of highway really goes more east and west at this point. So what you see isn't always what you get. Check this stretch of highway out on the map sometime.

But life is often like the posted signs. No matter whether it be religion, politics, marriage, family, career or any other important matter, we often are pulled in many directions all at once. What is the real truth? What is the best choice? Should you or shouldn't you?

Sometimes the signs all come together and the direction to be taken is clear. Other times, like these signs indicate, the direction to be taken can be deceiving. While we seem to be going north or south we in reality were going east or west. Which direction are we really going?

Some people say you must have faith to understand the best direction to take. Yet it seems all of my faith trip tiks always contain the same conflicting information seen in the above highway signs.

How about yours?
